Built between 1666 and 1679, the City Hall & the Castle of Good Hope is unarguably the oldest among the existing colonial buildings in South Africa.
The five important points of the castle are Oranje, Nassau, Catzenellenbogen, Buuren, as well as Leerdam. Tourists often ask about the yellow color of the castle and its significance. The castle walls are traditionally painted yellow since this color has the ability to reduce the sunshine's glare and heat.
Do not forget to check the Castle Military Museum that the main Castle houses as it showcases the William Fehr artwork collections as well as the Cape's military history.
